In this episode of The Long View, I'm pleased to be joined by first time guest Joe Sallen as we discuss his favorite game, Terra Mystica. What makes this game unique? Is the game a conflict game, or an economic game, or something else entirely? What novel ideas were presented in the game? What, if anything, does the expansion add to the experience. Find out the answers to these questions and more in this episode! As a bonus, I also review two new titles, City Hall by Tasty Minstrel Games, which can be found at the 2:06:30 mark of the episode, and Rattlebones by Rio Grande Games at the 2:25:20 mark of the episode. What makes these titles worthy of your time? Are the customizable dice of Rattlebones the next great mechanism in boardgaming? Does City Hall capture all of the backstabbing, wheeling dealing, influence peddling and application of cash that evokes the theme of politics? Listen and find out!
